Over an impressive 35 year career John Pilger's determination to uncover the truth and unearth the facts underlying numerous social and political injustices has taken him to every corner of the globe.

Now, for the first time on DVD come four of John Pilger’s most important films. Films that have been internationally praised for their uncompromising integrity and which have had direct impact against the brutal injustices otherwise ignored by popular media and western governments alike.
1970 – The Quiet Mutiny
John Pilger’s controversial first documentary film created a sensation when it broke the story of a rebellion emerging within the American army fighting the War in Vietnam. Changing public and media perception of the war, The Quiet Mutiny contributed to the withdrawal of US troops from the region.

1978 – Do You Remember Vietnam?
On the final day of the Vietnam War, John Pilger was one of the last to be air lifted from Indo-china. Three years later he returns to document the struggle of a people trying to reconcile their fractured culture while struggling to survive the international embargos placed against a land devastated by the 20th century’s longest running war.

1979 – Year Zero: The Silent Death Of Cambodia
John Pilger vividly reveals the brutality and murderous political ambitions of the Pol Pot/Khmer Rouge totalitarian regime which brought genocide and despair to the people of Cambodia while neighbouring countries, including Australia, shamefully ignored the immense human suffering and unspeakable crimes that bloodied this once beautiful country.

1994 – Death Of A Nation: The Timor Conspiracy
East Timor, a tiny country off the northern tip of Australia, has a history of bloodshed and dear with over 200,000 of its people slaughtered by neighbouring Indonesia. With Death Of A Nation, John Pilger exposes the human tragedy to which international governments turned a blind eye. This significant film has been internationally acknowledged as contributing to East Timor’s eventual liberation in 1999.
